A Different Kind of Humor

The Best American Humorous Short Stories is a collection of 19th-century and early 20th-century stories written by the likes of Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, George William Curtis, Bret Harte or O. Henry. These stories aren’t humorous in the sense of our modern understanding, they present a different kind of humor like jokes about men who don’t wear hats and ridiculous notions about the African-Americans and about women.
